Facts and History in the biography of President John Adams
Adams, as a teenager, was described by his father: "He was almost a man grown. He wasn't tall, not above five feet tall, but his shoulders were heavy. He was well knit, muscular, and quick and sure in his movements. His color was unusually high; just now his face was red from exertion, his blue eyes blazed."
He opposed the Stamp Act, served as lawyer for patriots indicted by the British, and was in the vanguard of the movement for independence.
He served as Vice President to George Washington. He
went to France as commissioner. He helped negotiate the peace treaty with Britain, and in 1785 became envoy to London.
Aged 90, Adams's death was ascribed to "merely the cessation
of the functions of a body worn out by age" but heart failure
was the probable cause of death.
